BIOGRAPHY: Full-time starter the past two seasons, winning All-Conference honors after both. Led the team in receiving as a senior, posting career-best numbers of 91/1,300/13. Junior totals were 65/1,048/8.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized possession wideout with reliable hands. Quickly releases off the line, immediately gets to top speed and displays sharpness running routes. Strong after the catch, breaking tackles and picking up positive yardage. Effectively uses the sidelines.
NEGATIVES: Does some unnecessary body-catching at times. Lacks the speed to break it downfield. Production numbers are inflated by the Texas Tech system.
ANALYSIS: Consistent on the college level, Filani nicely projects as a third wideout at the next level. Should be very effective as a red-zone target and on third-down situations.
